Hamilton leaves the F1 World Championship virtually sealed by winning in Japan


The English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) left almost resolved in his favor the Formula One World Cup by winning this Sunday, at Suzuka, the Japanese Grand Prix, where his rival for the title, the German Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) could only be sixth .

Hamilton, who started from pole position, is clearly aiming for his fifth world title after signing his seventy-first F1 victory – the ninth of the year – at Suzuka, where he won, ahead of fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas, a race in which the Dutch Max Verstappen (Red Bull) was third.

In the absence of four tests for the conclusion of the contest, on November 25, in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton – who could already celebrate five-time champion status within two weeks, in Austin (Texas), home of the US Grand Prix – heads the World with 331 points, 67 more than Vettel. EFE
